HITS TAX LAW AGAIN In a final message to the voters of In diana, Dr. McCulloch, Democratic nomi nee for Governor, and a veteran of the World War, declared In a statement la ■ued here today that ’‘if the past btate administration has been satisfactory, I want you to vote the Kepubllcnn ticket. After showing that the Goodrich ad ministration has been undemocratic, the candidate urged the Republicans them selves to mi seat the McCrays, the Good rich# and the Watsons, and concluded with an appeal to the people to “vote with the party that stands for home ruie in matters of government, for lower tax ation, for economy and business methods in State management, and for the pro motion of harmony between capital and labor, with a full regard for the equal rights of each.” Dr. McCulloch’s statement is as fol lows; . . , The campaign this fall has ceased to be & campaign. . It has been glorified Into a crusade. The moral Issues Involved go far be yoDd the plane of mere party politics. They have assumed a status of spiritual ity. Never since the days of abolition and those of Abraham Lincoln has the conscience of the people been #o aroused, party lines so obliterated and such a determination to register decisively the desire of our countrymen to vote for humanity. . .. The scales are falling away from tne eyes of tbs uninformed. The misleading arguments and the misrepresentations of these who are epposed to the great cove nant are falling of their own weight. And the results of this election are going to demonstrate In a decisive and unmistak able way that the conscience of the peo ple Is determined to eradicate forever the great political dissensions that result In war, . . „ 1 wish the election were today in order that the rebuke of an Indignant people might be the sooner administered to those leaders of the opposition who are sacrificing the world’s chance of re demption to their personal ambitions in their own animosities. + It is my duty, however, to speak of things here at home. I feel It is not necessary to assure you of my sincerity and earnestness of purpose in this con lest. Our State has been led far astray from the traditional form of govern ment under which we lived and pros pered for so many years. It is my duty and desire to set this forth clearly, pointing out the causes and suggesting remedies. . _ The real question In State affairs Is whether we want a government of highly centralized power and control, and one In which the executive function is made supreme, and the other two branches, the Judiciary and legislative made sub servient. This Is the type of govern ment under which we have been living for the last four years, and one which calls for removal. There will be no relief in electing the nominee of the i Republican party, because by word and by deed, Mr. McCray has shown that bis Ideas of government are Identical ; with those of Governor Goodrich. If this requires proof, let me point out: 1. The platform on which he Is run- j l.ing, and which he had a hand In mak- j lng. Indorses unqualifiedly the Goodrich administration. 2 Mr. McCray and Mr. Goodrich to- | gether dictated all the legislation re- 1 cently passed. 3. Mr. McCray in his public speeches has Indorsed the tax law as it stands, and Mr. Goodrich has done the same. These men think alike In terms of gov ernment. Their assistants and associates ere identical. If the past administration has been satisfactory, I want you to vote the Re publican ticket But. on the other hand, If you believe In Just and equitable tax ation based on real values Instead of in flated ones—if you believe in the rights of the smaller communities to local self -government and the control of their own affairs; If you believe in the bringing back of our State Institutions, charitable, correctional and educational, to their old high standards; and furthermore, if you believe In an economical and business like way of running the affairs of State, then vote the Democratic ticket Tues day. The greatest mistake the voters of In diana ever made, was In changing the prosperous and efficient rule that we had under Marshall and Ralston. The Dem ocratic party has a record of having paid off the State debt of elghty-two years' standing. It turned over a balance of nearly four millions of dollars as it went out of office. It kept up our institutions to a high standard of efficiency. And now almost every city and county !n the State Is In debt to the banks at high rates of Interest because they were aT'owed to raise amongst themselves the necessary money for their own mainte nance. These debts have still to be paid. Our Institutions have been brought down to i state of Inefficiency due to a perslm (Continued on Page Seven.)

G.O.P. COIN PLEA TURNED DOWN BY INDIANA MAN Farmer and Manufacturer Wires Back He Is for Cox. Chicago, 111., Nov. 1. Chas. M. Cooper, 406 Lombard Bldg., Indianapolis, Ind. Harding and Coolidge are going to be elected, which means everything to all of ns, I still need a substan tial amount to pay off the bills. Five hundred dollars from you will help wonderfully. Please wire me if I can depend on your help before elec tion. \ FRED W. UPHAM. Treasurer, Republican National Committee. Editor The Times—The above telegram was received by me this morning, to which I replied as follows: "Mr. Fred W. Upbam, treasurer: ‘‘Tou cannot depend on me for SSOO to help elect Harding and Coolidge for the following reasons: "1. ‘As a business man, being both n manufacturer and a farmer, I feel that my interests, as well as those of every business man, would be best conserved by the adoption of the League of Na tions, as soon as possible, which will come by the election of Cox r Roose velt. “2. ‘We can arrange the rate of ex change so some value can be again put Into foreign money—the pound sterling, the French franc and the German mark. As It is today, we are robbing all these people. It looks to me that we are kick ing them when they are down and out. Instead of trying to help them up and put them on their feet again. “3. The seven years under Woodrow Wilson have been the most glorious in the history of our country, from a busi ness point of view. The business man and laborer have made more money than ever before. Is this not true? Mr. Hard ing dwells long upon the groat extrava gauge of the Administration during the war. Leaving out of the question the hurry and expedition and extravagance which brought ihe war to a sudden close let me ask you who got all (his money? Was It not the business man and the laborer? Is it not all In this country now? We have the big end of all the gold on the earth today, as you know. “4. What is the cause of this sudden slump in business? The bottom has dropped out of wheat, corn and cotton, our chief products, and factories are rlosing down and men are being laid off by the thousands, and there la a general slowing up In all kinds of business. What is the cause? Mr. Cox has stated the cause. Because of our failure to go Into tho League of Nations and establish a credit for our fallen allies and enemies, so they can buy our goods. A laborer called at my factory the other day for work. He asked me a question and an swered it himself. ‘Why are the factories i laying off men by the thousands while at the same time they are expending mil lions in enlarging their plants? I’ll tell I you why,' be eald. ‘They are palling oft j the same old stunt Mark Hanna pulled i off In 1596.’ Mr. Upborn, Is this true? i You know. Mr. Coolidge, your candidate, : said he had not purchased a suit of ! clothes or a pair of shoes In two years, | and advised every one to <lo likewise. I do not believe In this kind of buai | ness philosophy. If everybody followed this advice, the business men would go bankrupt. No doubt It has helped on the ‘slump’ in business. It Is not the proper way to get at the profiteer. It Is too expensive, and the legitimate busi ness man and the laborer are mnde to suffer. The Inst Congress was asked by i President Wilson to pass laws so he i could reach the profiteer. Congress re fused, because Wilson asked it. So we ! are all made to suffer. The coal situation I now brings It home to all of us. Leaving 1 out any question of our moral obligation to go Into the league, I feel, from a busi ness point of view, that we should go in, and to do so, we must elect Cox and Roosevelt. ‘‘Yours truly, (Signed) “CHARLES M. COOPER.” File Suit to Correct Wrong Registration Suit was filed by George It. Hoffman and 3.80 others in probate court today against members of various precinct boards, asking that the boards be man dated to place in the correct precincts registrations which have been made in wrong precincts.

MIDWEST FIGHTS HOT NEW YORK, Nov. I.—The presidential campaign cauie to an end today with rue major party candidates In their home camps ready to await the verdict of the lnrgest number of voters ever reg istered for on American election. Twenty-nine million ballots will ho cast tomorrow if all the voters go to the polls. Os these 0.000.000 will be the votes of women, who constitute “the unknown quantity” in the election. Major party lenders, despite their con fidence, admitted worries over weather, women and independents. With the farmer vote claimed by a!! political parties, weather cut the big gest election figure in the Middle West. Indications today were that conditions generally would permit the country vote to reach the polls early. With the ex ception of Colorado and a few districts loads were reported In good condition and rains and snows were looked for In few spots tomorrow. Rain was forecast along the Eastern seabord, with snow expected In the lakes region. Voters in the West probably will find It fair and colder, except on the Pa cific coast. TRY TO GET OUT EARLY VOTE. Efforts are being concentrated on get ting out an early vote. With the exceptionally large number of tickets entered in the Middle West, elec tion officials feared Jama. Polls throughout the country generally will open at 6 or 7 and close twelve hours later. Thus, If there Is a landslide one way or the other the news of it may be known by the time the last minute voters on the Pacific coast are easting their bal lots, on account of the three hours differ ence in time which will permit three hours of ballot counting before tho polls close In the far West. Midwest Senate and Congressional fights were of Interest—particularly In Indiana, with Thomas Taggart. Demo crat, and James Watson, Republican— national leaders of their parties fussing over a Senate seat. In Wisconsin a similar squabble was offered with Senator Irvine Lonroot. Re publican, seeking re-election against the forces of Senator Lafollctte hacking James Thompson, Independent. Senator Cummins, Republican, was “having the fight of his life'' in lowa, meeting opposition from farmers and labor because of the railroad law. A vigorous battle Is also being waged for control of the House of Representa tives where the Republicans have a com fortable majority. PRESIDENT GIVES ELEVENTH HOUR STATEMENT. The President, last night, in a tele gram to a League of Nations mass meet ing in Boston, declared the issue to be decided tomorrow is the most vital which ever confronted the people, Last minute statements Included one from Cox asserting that “suffering hu manity awalta the verdict of America at the polls.” and charging that Harding, if elected, never will send the treaty to the Senate again, but will negotiate a separate peace with Germany ; one from Republican Chairman Hays asking the people to vote against “international ism" and “Wllsonlsm;” one from Sam uel Gompers, of the American Federation of Labor referring to Harding a* n "too of union labor,” and one from Scott C. Bone. Republican publicity director, charging that the “whispering campaign" against Harding originated on the spe cial train on which Cox toured the country.

Pastor From Pulpit Urges Election of Paul G. Davis Tho election of Paul G. Davis as prosecuting attorney of Marion Coun ty was urged by Rev. Thomas R White, pastor of the Meridian Heights Presbyterian Church, in a sermon yesterday. The Rev. Mr. White, who saw service overseas during the war, talked to his congregation on the necessity for voting for the right men for office regardless of party lines. He referred to the case of Roy C. Lingenfelter, whom the Marion Coun ty grand jury refused to Indict despite the fact that he admitted attacking so many little girls he could not remember all of them. “We should not hold In the office of prosecuting attorney a man who permitted this thing to be done,” he said. "I would like to see Paul G. Davis elected prosecutor. “We must not follow party lines In this election, for If we do wo will have men in strategic positions who are not the right kind of men.” In speakng of the League of Nations he said; “Asa man who was in France I will say that you may bring back the bodies of the boys who died over there, but you can not bring back the blood that was spilled in their struggle for the right. “I urge everyone of you to put out of your minds all partisan discus sion of the League of Nations and to read the covenant itself. “No man is qualified to vote Tuesday who has not read the covenant of the League of Nations ” COUNCIL SESSION WILL BE BRIEF Motorization and Franchise Measures Not Ready. The city council will not receive the motorization of the fire department or dinance and the amendment to the gat franchise tonight ns planned. Prospect* were that the regular meet ing would be brief, since several coun cilmen are actively engaged in the cam imign and have urgent political errands to complete in the last few hours be fore tile election. The motorization ordinances, which consist of one ratifying the contract to purchase aproximately $250,000 worth of motor apparatus and another approving a bond issue of $500,000 to complete the motorization, will not eo to the council for the reasons that the board of sufety has not awarded the contracts and Cor poratlon Counsel Samuel Ashby say* he has not bad time to draw up either measure. It was understood the board of safety will take no final action on the contracts before Wednesday. The Stutz Fire Engine Company is the low bidder on most of the equipment, low bids and the next lowest being compared as follows: Eighteen 600-Gal!on Pumpers—Ktutx, $170,100; American La France, $107,505. Seven 750-Gallon Pumpers—Stutz, $78,750; Seagrave, $84,000. One tractor for steamer. Mack, $0,552; Rea grave, $13,500. (The Seagravo hid wa* favored.

MUST RATIFY TREATY—HOOVER Speaker, Asking Modification, Says Pact Should Stand. STANFORD UNIVERSITY. PALO ALTO, CaL, Nov. 1. -"The constructive program Is the thing that will interest the Amorican people after the election.'* Herbert Hoover declared In a statement here today. He said the Republican campaign on the League of Nations Issue has had two phases-—constructive and destructive. Hoover's statement was issued to Indorse Samuel Shortrldge. senatorial Repub lican candidate. “To oped the treaty of Versailles for renegotiation would brlntf compete rhaoa to Korop* and calamity upon u* from it.” Hoover .declared. “The stability of the whole of Europe hangs upon the maintenance of the treaty and the economic situation in the United State# depends upon maintaining the ta. blllty and gradual recuperation of Europe's buying power. Therefore, the logic of tbo *ituation drive* this constructive program to the necessary modification of the present covenant and ultimate ratification of the treaty with modification or amendments."

ELEVENTH-HOUR VOTE FORECAST OF NO MOMENT ‘Experts’ ’ Opinions Principal ly to Bolster Ranks or Give New Courage. COUNT ONLY WILL TELL Eleventh hour predictions of success for one party or the other from writer* who have been carefully advertlseu as a preliminary to the publications of their forecasts do not influence elections directly. They seem in this campaign to have been promulgated for the principal pur pose of bolstering up wavering organ ization ranks and nerving certnin ele ments of political parties to last minute, desperate efforts. The truth about the election tomorrow is that NO ONE can predict with any de gree of certainty who will or who will not be elected. In the last month of this campaign the Democrats have made the most remark able Inroads ever seen on a Republican organization that had everything “sewed up.” The Democrats will win nationally if their last month's efforts have been suffi cient to arouse tbs voters to the mon strous hypocrisy and matchless wiggling strous wobbling of tbeir candidates. The Republicans will win nationally if the lead which they built up by their defamation of the President and their de ceit concerning the League of Nations is not swept away by a very easily discerni ble drift of voters from their baauers. ALL BTATKS DOIBTFI'L UNTIL VOTE COUNTED. It Is utter folly to line up a list of Re publican States and a list of Democratic States and place between them a list of doubtful States with the assertion that the vote of the doubtful States will carry the election. There are no States that will not be doubtful until the extent of the drift to. . ward the Democratic ticket ia ascertained at the poll* tomorrow. The most carefully built predictions of the most knowing writers In the country are subject to overthrow by the drift In any one of thousands of counties which the writers never heard of and j probably never will hear of, politically, i The Times has not attempted to pre dict the outcome of this election, for the sol* reason that it can not be pre dicted, and thoße among the Republican managers who are honest enough to aay i so will agree with this statement. In Indiana the Democrats never had j a better chance to carry the State. j In Marlon County they were never 5 more fortunate In their organization or ; in the issues than they are today. A verdict against the Democrats to morrow will be Indicative of nothing so much as a blind love of tbe Republican purty that transcends reason and Indi vidual inclinations. Throughout this campaign the Re publican party has had the advantage of organization, money and paid workers who bold th.- offices. ISSUES AND MEN WITH DEMOCRATS. The Democrats have had the advan tages of issue* and men. The question In this State Is really whether office getting has developed into a profession where professionals have more ability to carry elections than volunteer workers, moved by unselfish ' desires to servo their country. Illustrative of this la the fact that while the Republican# of Marlon County : will have hundreds of paid drivers help- j lng to get out the vote election day, the Democrats will rely on volunteer auto ( drivers, many of them women, who will furnish their own cars and their own j gasoline In sn effort to compete with , trained and paid workers. The question of success has now reached tbe stage where it is a contest between amateurs and professionals, a question of citizenship or politics. There may be many opinions held and expressed concerning the results. Four years ago there were acme mis takes made by some of our most widely touted touts. This year there is very likely to he an even greater mistake made than was the prematura announcement of the elec tion of Charles Evans Hughes four years ago.

Sir William Hearat also alluded to the friendly relations between the two countries in hia response. The other speakers touched on the ad vantages to be derived through the pro posed waterway, the principal address being made by Mr. Inman. "It is ft source of real regret,” said Mr. Inman, "that certain of our friends in New York arc arrayed against tb's great project. "Are we In Indiana to understand that New York persists In ‘biting the haul that feeds It?' “Can it be that a little handful of financial strategists, attired In dress suits and sitting in roof gardens, eating broiled lobster in the city of New York, are so short- Blghted they cannot see the economic disaster which Is Inevitable nn less tbe great producing territory of tho Central West is unhampered in its ef forts to provide food and clothing foi the Nation aud for millions beyond the sens?"
